North America: EWP output still much higher than 2011

20.09.2012 − 

The North American production of Engineered Wood Products (EWP) continued to climb in the first and second quarter of 2012, showing significant increases in most instances both compared to the respective quarter last year and to the respective previous quarter. However, when it comes to LVL the uphill trend has softened again in the second quarter, as production volumes in Canada were significantly lower than in the first quarter. Overall second-quarter LVL production of 365,300m³ was the same as in the first quarter. In the first quarter, North American LVL producers had boosted their output by 37% compared to the fourth quarter of 2011. Meanwhile, North American I-Joist production continued to increase across both regions in the second quarter.
